? they include senator john kerry or u.n. ambassador susan rice. of course, senator john kerry recently spent a lot of time with president obama. he helped him on debate preparations. another person who has been very vocal about wanting to leave if the president has a second term. treasury secretary timothy geithner. he's been the president's right hand man when it comes to the economy. he helped bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. possible replacements for geithner include the current chief of staff jack lou, who is widely respected within this administration but also within washington, d.c. another person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland security secre
financier, boone pickens, these were the funders of the swiftboat veterans against john kerry. they've been with him a long time. he clearly promised them something in the 2012 race you, and he had not delivered. >> he doesn't issue a mea culpa, but gives an unbelievable excuse. he writing -- i'm quoting him now -- mr. obama was ruthlessly efficient in executing an early negative campaign. the president was also lucky. this time the october surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of got. hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidential and bipartisan. so let me get this right. the -- mr. romney was soundly beaten both in the popular vote and the electoral college and the swing states that mattered the most? and it was all because of hurricane sandy? >> yeah, i think a less charitable person might be saying "and the dog ate my homework." in the 1980s, karl rove, a young political operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electo
the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind o

in the after math 6 john kerry's loss,figure that can bring it b? >> part of what we did in 2005 in the after math 6 john kerry's loss, they're going through the same question. who is the leader of the sdmic party. and part of what we did frankly between governor dean and leadership in the house and the senate, we brought governors in and mayors in and kind of said how do we as a party better communicate our values. we looked at we're losing votes among people whom they share our values. so how do we do a better job of communicating those values. and think that's the kind of tough look that the republicans really are going to have to take in terms of where they go from here and what kind of party they want to be. >> but the democrats after '88, though, they he did a lot of soul searching and along came bill clinton. >> that's true. i just think in 2005 we were in a slightly different position. >> i think there's also a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. and that is the nominating process for the gop. because you've had this exodus of independents. that needs
demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into the party. >> he can become a cable tv host. >> who knows. >> there's one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today, he's gone, over, history. it sounded like a valedictory. he didn't talk about our cause will live, we're going to continue to fight in the future. it was sort of like he was going to recede, he had done it twice, he lost. there are a lot of people who regarded him as the transitional figurine when he was the nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bain capital, who knows. i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him broaden out? claim the mantle of the party standard bear. >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. he is also a bonafide brainiac when it comes to budget things. you may not ag
the independent vote ended up losing the presidential contest. john kerry in 2004 won it by 1 percentage point, and then mitt romney in this election just last week won it by 5 percentage points but lost. it raises the question, you know, it's always good to win independent voters, but it might not determinative of an election. >> what is the lesson learned here. it's great to consider those that are independent, they're not strongly tied to one aparty or the other. if they're not the difference maker, not that they should be ignored, but how much do you play to them? >> the difference maker seems to be in all the elections the party identification. having democrats or republicans more than the opposition, that's a very good indication who is going to end up winning an election. the other thing is how do you define "independents"? are they right down the middle and swing from one election to another? or as the theory goes, when the political wins are against their party, they're republican, they're not happy with the republican party. they say i'm going to call myself an independent because i'
. >> is this a fight the white house wants to have, major? is john kerry looking like the better candidate now? >> well, that's for the administration to decide and they're getting early signals from republicans that if the president wants to go down this road and nominate ambassador rice, that it's going to be a fight and it's going to be game on and it will take on a very partisan and divided tone, very rapidly, whether the administration wants to do that and make a symbol not only of susan rice or go with someone far more easily confirmable like senator kerry might be a choice the administration wants to make but all indications is they're ready for a fight and up to the president to decide whether he wants to have it. >> thanks to see both of you. you can watch the president's news conference live at 1:30 eastern time here. in the meantime, congresswoman nancy pelosi is holding a news conference saying she wants to remain democratic leader in the house and aides said she made the announcement just a short time ago while talking with her caucus. let's listen.

kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu
's not interested in serving another four years. speculation is centering on senator john kerry as her replacement or susan rice and treasury secretary, tim geithner wants out. he's expected to be replaced by and leon pal net ta is expected to -- palmetta is expected to return to wis home as well. >>> romney went to boston in tuesday and he told reporters on the plane that win or lose, he wanted to spend time with his family after months out on the road. romney advisers won't speculate what they will do next. but they say the 65-year-old governor probably won't disappear. >> this man was been arrested for breaking into nancy pelosi's home. he was also trying to break into someone else's home. investigators don't believe those break-s ins were politically motivated. >>> the nor -- in the northeast, it's causing problems here as well. how it is affecting flights in and out of snowe this moving. this-- affecting flights in and out of sfo this morning. kzo >>> good thursday morning. off to a -- off to a dry start. looking out to the east bay, we can see some clouds, some breaks in the clouds. we'll be
? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
. bush defeated john kerry, killed with recrimination and remorse. what could we have done. all of that is healthy ultimately. but that should not be interpreted by this president as a foundation of his strength or source of republican weakness. it is a process of rebuilding strength. as we look at what he said today, he said he wants to talk about balance. but didn't talk about spending cuts. all of these -- more than 20 new taxes will not amount to the same amount of money. it will be about 60% of the total deficit. that's wait amounts to. so it's going to have to be what the president alluded to vaguely as balance, and whatever they agree to. there will have to be sharp, tough decisions on what will be cut in this federal budget. it's unsustainable. one thing that cheers me and should cheer everyone concerned about responsible fiscal policy is that this president doesn't have any choice. by the way, ultimately neither does baron or mcconnell. we are watching all of the prolific spending, the irresponsibility come crashing down around our heads. the markets cannot suffer much
with her, whether or not that's over. then the other one, of course, is john kerry of massachusetts. the problem is if you pull kerry down from massachusetts, there is a guy walking around massachusetts right now who would like a senate seat, right? you could totally end up with a situation of him running again? any sense of how the president might negotiate that decision? >> no sense at all. you know, kerry has been widely known to covet this job for a long time. speaking for myself, i always thought he would make a fine secretary of state. in the old-fashioned sense of who would do a good job, this is someone i think who showed us when he was a presidential candidate in the senate, he would be a wonderful secretary of state. but you create this political problem. we've seen how one vote in the senate can make such a difference. it's hard to know how to solve it. >> the speech to the dnc felt like an audition. it looks like holder will probably leave the attorney general position, although i have great imaginings of him running like a voter suppression, voter rights thing. >> looki
with an incumbent. he went after john kerry's war record. >> what did president bush do? he claimed a mandate he didn't have on iraq and it sank his presidency. sorry to interrupt. >> is there a number to sum up the election? 47%. a moment to sum up the obama campaign, it was the first debate. these were self-inflicted wounds that these candidates may to themselves. much influence do you think they had? >> i think the 47% was a pretty big deal. democrats have been laying the groundwork with these attack ads portraying romney as the guy who cared about the middle class and was interested in protecting rich people like himself. romney sort of betrayed himself. the democrats seized on that. it happened at a time when romney's candidacy was floundering. the first debate, he was able to put that 47% behind him, but the damage was done. >> he put that behind him in his first debate. he spent all that money and allow time characterizing romney as an uncaring monster. all the sudden he looked reasonable. he looked like somebody who could be president. the president did not bring his a game. part of it w
gum. get rid of it. i was going to tell you earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my friend. i work so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him. and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislator that i served with. he's been wait out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development and many other things. so i don't know any ks that the president or anyone in the white house has had with him and any conversation i've had with john kerry, he does not bring up his being secretary of anything. but i'll do everything to help him if he's chosen. and we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think are his priorities should be coming out of today's press conference? >> the president's priorities are what he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of
he came out so strongly so that when he doesn't appoint her and goes with someone like john kerry or even tom donelan, his defense is already on record. and he doesn't have to relitigate that again in the press. >> i'll tell you what i saw yesterday, issue aside, i saw a president with a heightened level of testosterone, gravitas, and maybe a precursor of what he's going to look like the next four years. i saw a definite different kick to his step. obviously, he's been going toe to toe, but there was an authority, there was a -- i'm going to keep using the word "testosterone." a lot of that was missing in the first term, and i found that very interesting, his first kind of public volley eight days later as a harbinger of things to come. >> he spoke quickly in that press conference. did you notice? it was the fastest i've ever heard him speak. you know, we got accustomed over the past four years to a very slow, methodic kind of elongated speech pattern. and he came out, he was rapid, he was quick. >> you got a problem? come to me. i found that very interesting. >> richard, what are

to barack obama may be replaced by another former presidential candidate, massachusetts senator john kerry, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate? the president's national security adviser tom donilon, and perhaps a more controversial choice, u.n. ambassador susan rice. she was the the obama administration's representative who gave the initial ip correct intelligence explanation of the benghazi attacks. still, most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two front-runners. white house veterans say clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the secretary of state in the second administration has the advantage of a president who has their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> in treasury the top candidate to replace timothy geithner white house chief of staff jack lew, who has also served as the budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and look elsewhere, perhaps to another senator or the clinton administration veteran. at the pentagon leon panetta's departure may not occur until the spring bu

of the names that's been thrown around, senator john kerry, who helped the president prepare for the debates, has been talked about possibly going to state. there are other names being thrown around as well, and i'm sure those lists will continue to grow in the coming days. as for the president, nothing public on his schedule today, other than the presidential daily briefing, that will happen later this morning. the first one that will happen here at the white house, since his re-election. the president and the first family return here to the white house, late yesterday. the staff was planning to have a welcome out on the south lawn, but because of bad weather, marine one could not land here, so it was a low-key arrival. what's on the president's agenda, moving forward, you've been talking about dealing with the fiscal cliff, also the president has to work on trying to unite the country after a very divisive and very expensive campaign. in addition, the president will work very hard to try to build a different relationship with members of congress. we saw him already reach out by phone to jo
for the secretary of state position john kerry would like lee be easily confirmed in the senate. though are mentioning susan rice as somebody for that position. she has been disqualified and disqualified herself by the statements shy made five days after the attack. you need somebody with sound judgment willing to ask tough questions and to all of america this did not seem to be a spontaneous demonstration about a video. it seemed to be a terrorist attack and that is exactly what it turned out to be. jenna: would you support senator kerry as the next defense secretary? >> let's see who the president nominates and we'll go forward from there. i believe senator kerr rewould be confirmed by the senate. jenna: we look forward to hearing from you. i know this is a closed briefing but an important start to a series of hearings over the next several weeks. nice to have you back with us. we look forward to speaking with you again. >> thank you, jenna. rick: gasoline rationing coming to an end in the garden state. governor chris christie in new jersey making that announcement as fema approved $1
? >> state is tough for me. i have a hard time seeing john kerry get the job he wants and replacing hillary clinton because that would open up a senate seat and presumably scott brown of massachusetts would slide in. i think the interesting one is treasury. jack lew obviously is a good candidate. one thing bouncing around the sphere is mitt romney who has experience there. but, you know, i think it's going to be hard to -- hard to see where the chips fall. obviously you want someone with a bit of outreach to wall street, but, you know, someone like a tony james, a private equity executive who is tied with the democrat, it's hard to see after this race and mitt romney having been the opponent, a guy like that fitting in. certainly somebody -- >> you need to head it where do you go in the blogosphere, i think. be careful. >> okay. okay. yeah. well, i'm not -- i'm not predicting romney but he's one of the most interesting names out there. but certainly somebody -- another serious name who could deal with fiscal cliff. >> that would be a great man. >> the state thing is interesting because as j
speculation that brown could make another run for senate if president obama names senator john kerry to his cabinet, senator brown is rumored to be a contender for massachusetts governor in had 2014. but brown insists his immediate future is focused outside of politics. >> there's no vacancy that i'm aware of and my biggest job now is to make sure there's a smooth transition from my office to the senator elect's office. there's not an opening right now for governor nor is there an opening for senator. but there is an opening for a dad and a husband, and that's the role that i want to play. >> wrote today about the future of conservatism. you say the challenge between self-reflection and cannibalization. >> for all the talk of the civil war within the gop, i just don't see it and it certainly doesn't have to happen. i think self-reflex is good and conservatives need to talk about what just happened. they also need to remember that they didn't bother explaining to anyone over the past four years why conservative politics work. they were on defense for four queers talking about obama this, oba
